We enjoyed our 6 nights at the Fairmont Hotel. From the easy check in and out process to the daily breakfast in the Laurel Room we loved it. We were entitled to free WIFI and gym usage at Active One - within the hotel by joining the free President's Club. WIFI reception was poor and slow but over time we... More

The hotel was OK. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The TV worked. The bathroom was small. There was nothing special about the room or the hotel. Rooms at far less expensive chains are as nice or nicer. No free WIFI in the room. I hope my room was the least expensive one in the hotel because I... More

I love Fairmont properties, and was excited to stay at the Fairmont's original landmark hotel in San Francisco. It was as grand and beautiful as the other Fairmonts I have been at. We were able to stay in the Luxembourg Suite, on the third floor. It gives you a view out of the front of the hotel, complete with the... More

Run with the efficiency of well tuned museum...which with its historical significance is! All the rooms are newly renovated with understated taste retaining the elegance of this iconic property. The world famous Tonga Room makes a great Mai-Tai and the Laurel Court food and service is par excellence. Only downside is problematic and expensive valet parking...and the walk back UP... More

Thank you for your kind words about the hotel. I'm very pleased to hear you had such a nice visit.

The hotel is located in a historic building and a newer 20+ storey tower. We stayed in the tower, on the 17th floor, with a very nice view of the city (when the fog lifted:) Overall it was a pleasant stay but if the room came with better bathroom amenities and a free wifi, it would have felt more like...

Thank you for commenting on your recent stay with us. I"m pleased you had such a nice visit and enjoyed your view from the tower. As you mentioned (Karl the Fog permitting) the tower affords some of the most stunning views in the City. Thanks again and we look forward to your return. Sincerely, Lucas Schumacher More
